A little voice within my head

Whispered to me,  “get out of bed,

Stop feeling sorry for yourself

And rise up from that dusty shelf. ”

“It’s not as bad as what you think

Please move back safely from the brink

Tis time to pay attention to

All that the Lord has done for you !”

“Wake up, wake up, ere it’s too late

Just how much longer will you wait ?

This scene is coming to an end

Make haste to mend your fence, my friend  !”

The wind, it whispers in the breeze

And blows its breath into the trees

It sings a song of joyousness

That’s gathered in the robin’s breast.

The mockingbird sounds crisp and curt

He does not wish a songbird hurt

And mimics all he can,  but still

He stops short of the whip-poor-will,

You’ll hear the chorus of each bird

It is the best I’ve ever heard !

The sun sinks low in darkened sky

Preparing soon to say goodbye

The wind has reached its all time low

With reticence here and below

The evening creeps, its silence taut

The stars keep blinking as they ought

Tis time to bid to all good night

Until we wake with morning’s light !

The lonesome whistle of the train

Keeps singing to my tired brain

The trip is long and nears its end

I’m ever weary, oh my friend

And what if we should never die

How could we then embrace goodbye ?

 

THE LORD AWAITS ( 2019 ) 2019/03/16

I thought my heart was in a bind

Because true love I could not find

No matter what I came up blank

Nothing was left on which to bank.

I’ve often wondered what went wrong

Why did it take so very long

My life’s been filled with true regret

There’s been no happy ending yet.

And chances are there never will

My stars are crossed, romance is nil

At last I am too old to care

Thank God my Lord awaits me there !

I hear the wind, it stirs the trees

And whispers softly to the breeze

Please help me Lord because I’m lost

It matters not what e’er the cost

For I am old, prepared to die

And learning how to say goodbye !

 

TRUST IS A VIRTUE (2019) 2019/03/14

When I was but a little child 

And life was newer, sweeter, mild 

My mother taught me many things 

About the joy that kindness brings 

And why respect’s a two way street 

When often strangers chance to meet 

The earth is precious needing care 

With trust the virtue all must share !
